I find it terribly ironic that any library would be in favor of banning books ("Too hot for Harford, librarian concludes," May 31). While "Fifty Shades of Grey" is certainly a scandalous novel, libraries shouldn't be cutting off readers' access to it. This kind of censorship sets a dangerous precedent for books being banned because they are viewed as immoral.
Leave the choice to read the book to the readers. Besides, by banning this book, you put it among the ranks of other famously banned books like "The Great Gatsby" and "The Catcher in the Rye." Shallow trash like "Fifty Shades" isn't worthy of such an honor.
